|Address||Mahuahua Pl, 96740 Kailua-Kona, United States|
Come and go as you wish--you have exclusive access with exterior entry to this ground-floor suite. There is one-bedroom (comfy queen-size bed) a private bath, a living room with kitchenette, and outdoor space including a pool. All ultra-clean, modern, and comfortable. The living room includes a sofa sleeper for a 3rd and 4th guest. All rooms have fans, and windows on three sides keep the air flowing.
The kitchenette includes a full-size fridge, sink, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, and a hot plate is available upon request.
We provide environmentally-friendly soap, shampoo, and dish soap and welcome guests to minimise use of chemicals. We live on a tiny island, and waste goes directly into the land we live on! We also compost and manage our own trash with an effort to minimising.
You have exclusive use 1 parking space--and hiring/renting a car is essential on the Big Island, regardless where you stay. You have shared access to the gorgeous backyard and pool (see house rules below). There is a shared BBQ/grill available for your use.
We are a married couple, both friendly, well-traveled guys who love our island. We are happy to welcome you, give you a few pointers, and let you explore on your own, or are willing to help you with more in-depth planning if you wish. We do love getting to know people, and are happy to make new friends and "talk story" as time permits.
We're happy to point you in the direction of great restaurants, awesome coffee, sublime art, groovy farmer's markets, special beaches, and more.
Our neighborhood is the Kona dream--close to everything, with views of the Pacific for memorable sunsets. We are centrally located a short drive from the shops, restaurants, and diversions of "downtown" Kailua-Kona town and Ali-i Drive, charming galleries of Holualoa, and Keauhou.
It's a very short drive to beaches, and yes, you could walk, but a car is really essential at our flat, or any you book. We're perfectly positioned for you to explore the Kona and Kohala region's beaches and diversions, or head north and experience Waimea cowboy country, or head south to lovely Captain Cook and beyond to the Green Sand Beach and eventually Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
There is a gas station/convenience store steps away, along with Kona's mountainside walking/cycling trail.
Getting Around this Island
Regardless where you stay, we strongly recommend that guests rent/hire a car for exploring the Big Island. Limited public bus service is available, but probably not when or where you would want it. From our house it's a 15-20 minute walk to Ali'i Drive, where a trolley shuttle runs back and forth between Keahou and spots in downtown Kailua, even going as far as the International Marketplace (Target).
Having worked, as a travel writer, from inns, homes, and hotels around the globe, Randall knows good WiFi is essential--we offer it as hosts.
